Mousehole regained the lead six minutes after the break when a determined run by Nick Pugliese ended with a fierce shot from the edge of the box that went in via the underside of the bar.
City managed just one attempt on goal in the 71st minute when substitute Smeeth's first sight of the ball presented him with a simple chance which he hesitated too long over, allowing King to make what turned out to be a match-winning save.
The Seagulls have now won all three of their opening division one west games.
Wade Brown scored the only goal of the game as Mousehole beat Penryn last Wednesday.
Mousehole were bidding to make it four wins in a row at home to Porthleven last night and on Saturday they travel to Foxhole Stars.
Callington Town 1, Penzance 0
Penzance slipped to their second defeat of the season at Ginsters Marshfield Parc on Saturday, though John Dent's men were unlucky not to come away with a point.
Callington took the game to the Magpies in the opening exchanges and they were rewarded when Kirk Smith crossed for Sam Stevens to volley home from close range.
Only Dan Cheac in the Penzance goal prevented Stevens from adding a second goal in the first half as Callington continued to create openings.
But after failing to extend their lead Penzance put more pressure on after the break as Callington hung on to their lead.
Steve Parker pulled off some good saves to deny Penzance and after the break the hosts defended resolutely to keep their winning start intact.
Last Wednesday Penzance suffered their first defeat of the season after losing 2-1 at Helston Athletic.
After trailing to Mark Goldsworthy's 16th minute opener, the Magpies drew level through Jamie Burr after 58 minutes.
Despite being the better side after the break, Penzance failed to add to their tally and they were dealt a real sucker punch when Jamie Thomson grabbed the winner in the 65th minute.
ANDREW Butler scored a hat-trick as Sticker stormed to the top of the division one west table after thrashing Holsworthy 8-1 at Burngullow Park.
Andy Avery's men have won all three league games and top the league by virtue of goal difference after this resounding victory.
Butler opened the scoring for the hosts and Ben Rosevear added a second goal with a drive from 20 yards out.
Lewis Prince made it 3-0 from the edge of the area and Liam Dingle added a fourth goal before half-time.
More goals followed after the break with Dingle, Butler and Prince making it 7-0 to Sticker.
Jason Cordice pulled a goal back for Holsworthy, before Butler completed his hat-trick and the rout.
Division one west newcomers Bude Town bounced back from the disappointment of their incredible opening day 6-5 defeat at home to Vospers Oak Villa to win 3-1 at Dobwalls.
After losing their opening two games, Bude fell behind after eight minutes when Matt Foster fired the ball home from the edge of the area.
Town drew level on the stroke of half-time when John Allen charged down Josh Gilbert's attempted clearance, allowing him to tap the ball into an empty net.
Despite the protestations of Dobwalls, Dave Youlden then put Bude in front in the 73rd minute from the penalty spot.
Adam Smith made sure of victory for the visitors in the 78th minute when he finished well through a crowd of players.
Wadebridge Town were left kicking themselves after surrendering the lead in the last 15 minutes to lose 4-2 at Penryn Athletic.
It had started so well for the Bridgers, who led through Dan Jennings.
However, they went at the break level when David Broglino scored from the penalty spot for the hosts after 39 minutes.
Despite a strong start to the second half from Penryn, Wadebridge restored the lead in the 70th minute thanks to a Sam Gerkin header and the visitors looked on course to claim victory.
However, three goals in the final 15 minutes at Kernick put paid to that.
Kayne Trevaskis brought the scores level when he headed home Olly Moody's cross.
With full time approaching Trevaskis made it 3-2 to Penryn with a good turn and shot.
And the striker completed a quickfire hat-trick deep in injury time much to Wadebridge's frustration.
Foxhole Stars are still searching for their first points of the season after losing 5-0 at home to Helston Athletic.
They gave a good account of themselves in the first half and only trailed 1-0 after Joe Stone turned the ball into his own net after Charlie Young's header had come back off the bar.
There were strong appeals for a Foxes penalty when Dan Vincent was bundled over in the box.
And after surviving that scare, Helston took control.
Mark Goldsworthy doubled the lead after running on to Dan Stidwell's pass.
Goldsworthy grabbed another goal to make it 3-0 with a good finish from 12 yards.
In the 74th minute substitute Stidwell got his name on the scoresheet with a fine drive that gave the Foxhole goalkeeper no chance.
Stidwell then turned provider as his pass picked out Matt Fox, who tapped the ball home on the stroke of full-time.
